In some interesting changes to their traditional format on Saturday night of all-star weekend, the NBA will now pit the Western conference against the East in multiple events.
Per an offcial press release from the NBA, each respective conference can earn points by competing in the skills challenge, Three Point Shootout, and Dunk competition. At the end of the night, the conference with the most points will be crowned champion.
Also in a great move, the winning conferences captain will be able to donate $350,000 to their charities. The losing captain will be given $150,000 to donate.
Interesting move by the NBA to up interest in their all-star weekend. And anytime a charity is involved you know it’s for a good cause.
